Scotland's solo project Hellripper have returned with a new recording which continues the mixture of black, speed metal and punk from previous releases and this is a review of his 2019 ep "Black Arts & Alchemy" which will be released in April by Reaper Metal Productions.
A very fast thrash and speed metal sound starts off the ep along with a great amount of blast beats. Vocals are mostly high pitched black metal screams as well as some 80's style shouting vocals and the music also incorporates a great amount of old school hardcore punk elements along with an influence of Motorhead.
When guitar solos and leads are utilized they are done in a very melodic and old school style while all of the musical instruments have a very powerful sound to them. Throughout the recording you can also hear a great mixture of slow, mid paced and fast parts while the music also mixes in influences of NWOBHM.
On this recording Hellripper remains true to his mixture of black, speed metal and punk. The production sounds very old school while the lyrics cover Satanism, Occultism and Blasphemy themes.
In my opinion this is another great sounding recording from Hellripper and if you are a fan of black, speed metal and punk, you should check out this ep. RECOMMENDED TRACKS INCLUDE "All Hail The Goat" and "Headless Angels". 8 out of 10.
